THE HAZRATGANJ police, on Tuesday, claimed to have arrested yet another accused wanted in the case of attack on UP Congress Committee member Luv Bhargava’s wife Mehar. The main accused in the case — Sachin Pahadi and Amit Singh, however, were roaming scot-free enjoying patronage of a don-turned MLA supporting the government.

On the other hand, Mehar was battling for life at a Delhi hospital after she was shot at Dilip Pur Tower building on February 28.

The cops today arrested Pramod Singh, an aide of gangster-turned block pramukh KD Singh. The police had arrested KD Singh’s room attendant Jai Prakash, the very next day of the shootout. The police had then declared Pramod Singh absconding claiming that he was involved in the incident.

Incidentally, both Pramod and Jai Prakash were not present when Sachin had opened fire in an inebriated state on Mehar.

A native of Bihar Pramod revealed before the mediapersons that he was employed with Career Consultancy at the Prince market, Hazratganj. He also said that he used to stay at KD Singh’s flat at Dilip Pur Tower.

Pramod further said that Sachin and his friends were having liquor at KD’s flat that fateful night waiting for a lawyer. Sachin and others left the flat around 10.30 pm and later got engaged in the eve-teasing and subsequent brawl with the woman, Pramod revealed.

Pramod said that Sachin was a frequent visitor to KD Singh’s flat and was carrying a reward from Uttranchal police. The police have failed to quiz KD Singh following pressure exerted by latter’s mentor — a don-turned MLA from an eastern UP district.
